    Episode 184: Rush Part 2 – Big Chongus

    Episode 184: Rush Part 2 – Big Chongus

    In this second installment, we cover Rush when they get real popular. Over several albums they put out bangers that the world could not deny and they saw themselves skyrocket to fame. While Neil braced himself for that impact, Alex and Geddy were thrown off by the throngs of loving fans. And despite the nay-sayers (and many did say nay), the boys refused to back away from their creative desire to write 20 minute opuses. In fact, they tripled down.

    Episode 183: Rush Part 1 – Palm Trees and Broken TVs

    Episode 183: Rush Part 1 – Palm Trees and Broken TVs

    Rush is one of the most polarizing bands out there- you either love 'em or hate 'em. We at Rock Candy are firmly placed in the former camp and are ready to defend that opinion by sharing their epic tale here. In this first part, we go through the childhoods of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart, and discuss how they came together and the beginnings of their rock journey.

    Episode 181: Ronnie James Dio – It’s All About the He Said He Said…

    Episode 181: Ronnie James Dio – It’s All About the He Said He Said…

    Dio was one of the greatest vocalists, not just in metal, but of all time. To look upon him you wouldn't think he held the power he did, but the minute he opened his mouth, everyone was proven wrong. He was a true work horse, starting and joining many a band throughout his lifetime. Never one to compromise, Dio stood true to his creative juices and came up with some of the best fantasy metal the world has ever heard. We tell his story, from his band geek youth, through the years he took to find his footing in the music biz, to the determined spirit that he held fast to at the end of tragically short life.

    Episode 180: Sister Rosetta Tharpe – It Wasn’t The Coolest Marriage

    Episode 180: Sister Rosetta Tharpe – It Wasn’t The Coolest Marriage

    It's time to tell the tale of the originator of rock n' roll. Without this woman, music as we know it today would not exist. And even though she holds these high accolades, Sister Rosetta Tharpe still rarely gets her due. This woman was a work horse, dedicated to the music she was crafting. She started off moving the congregation at church, but would soon bring that to the stage. The people fell in love with her energetic but sweet performance style and many children saw her play guitar and wanted those skills. This is the story of the birth of rock n' roll.

Your 2 new best friends…

I love this podcast…equally for the extensive research and the 2 hosts that deliver the goods. They are smart, funny and have such an easy familiarity about them that you’re left wishing you could hang out with them at a bar with unlimited drink tickets and a bucket of quarters for the juke box. Whenever a new episode pops up in my feed, I know I’m in for a good time. Turn up the volume.

Take your time, ladies!!

I don’t normally listen to podcasts and went into this expecting to hate it because that’s the type of person I am - hateful. But, their jokes and occasional “side banter” really makes the whole experience far more enjoyable! I find Ashleigh and Maggie’s personalities to be great, friendly and welcoming. I often found myself laughing along with them even! It feels like a natural conversation I used to have with friends when I still had some.

Next time I listen I may keep a beer or two around to join in on the drinking games! Keep doing them!

Amazing show!

well..?

Listened to the episode about Rammstein, such a great representation of the ignorance deeply rooted in America’s cultural vision. Funny chaotically but hard to follow, eat at McDonald’s if you need fast and junky happy meal.
